We are finishing up Unit 2 in math. The students worked on solving a variety of problems related to multiplication. Last week the students made picture graphs and bar graphs. They answered questions about graphs and used multiplication to find answers. Next week we will have a test on Unit 2. The students will be bringing home a study guide on Monday. Our Unit 3 is also about multidigit addition and subtraction.
The class has been enjoying reading Chocolate Touch. They are learning new vocabulary words and answering questions about the reading. We will finish reading the book next week and begin a book project.
We finished fables by listening to The Tortoise and the Hare, The Red Hen, and The Grasshoppers and the Ants. The class also listened to a few books related to memories. They listened to My Rotten Red-Headed Older Brother and The Printer.
Students have been working on a personal narrative writing piece. They added details, made good word choices, changed the lead, and added quotes. Many students are surprised by how many ways we can improve our writing. We will finish up our writing pieces next week.
Science and Environmental Education
During science, the class learned more about wetlands. They learned adaptations of wetland plants and animals to help them survive in the wetland. They also learned ways humans can help or harm the wetlands. We ended our unit by creating a plant or animal for our pond in the hallway. Next week we will move on to learn about early Native Americans.
During EE time the students had time to experience a wetland with a lot of cattails. They also had phenology to record the changes in our environment.
